“The journey of thousand miles starts with one step”
Similarly your blogging journey starts with the right topic selection.
Choosing the perfect topic for your blog will decide whether you fail or succeed online.
The best way to choose the right blog topic is: taking some time to decide on the topic which are you are interested in.
I’ll show you few money making topics in this post to give you a better idea about present blogging scenario.
Let me clear few things before choosing the kick ass topic for your blog.
Why do you want to blog?
For money? For personal experience or for popularity? Or for writing about everything you do in your life?
In all cases you need to build a proper planning to create a successful blog.
One of the biggest blogging mistakes which almost 80% of the new bloggers make is that they aren’t able to choose the perfect blog topic for their blogs and that is the reason for their blogging failure.
People will only read your blog if you write useful and quality articles on your blog in a specific topic, so how could you write a quality article on the topic you aren’t interested and don’t have any knowledge on.
How to avoid choosing the wrong blog topic?
Most bloggers start blogging just for making money and they pick a topic which they know pays high commission or the niche they choose is current hot and high paying niche which can make them most money, but they don’t have passion about those topics.
This is the sure fire way to make your blog a failure because you are not going to stick with the topic and when you do not enjoy what you are writing about, then you better quit it.
There are many tips to avoid choosing the wrong blog topic
- Don’t choose a topic that is popular but you know nothing about
- Avoid choosing a topic you see others are making money with
- Do not choose a topic that someone else recommended it to you
How to choose the right blog topic?
In my opinion, you should focus on the topic in which you are passionate about, not the topic which is high paying and that has brought profits to others.
If you start a blog in your favorite topic it will help you when you need to come up with blog posts. You can share your own ideas and personal experiences about the topic in which you have passion and it’s gonna give you the reason to wake up at morning and continue sharing the things which makes you come alive and which you like.
If your blog topic is something in which you don’t have passion than you can’t write very good articles without crapping and copying others stuff.
How to find your passion?
It’s difficult for many bloggers to find their passion because it requires some serious brain storming, they can’t find the topic in which they are interested in. If you have any difficulty in finding a blog topic then don’t worry I will help you to find your one.
Just think about your daily life routine like what are you doing at free time playing games, cycling, watching TV, traveling, playing soccer and think about what type of blogs or newspapers you read most.
Few topics to choose a topic for your blog
- Internet Marketing
- Social Networking & Media
- Web Design
- Personality Development
If you are still stumped than ask your friends or family members what you are mainly interested in and what they think you’re good at? They might help you and say something like you are good at cycling or you help their computer problems. This is the way that I found my passion.
This is the way I found my passion, I like writing and typing and I spend more than 2 or 3 hours a day on writing that is why I’ve selected blogging niche.
So find out your passion and make your blog on that topic than it will not be a blogging for you, it will be a game for you which you will enjoy all the time.
I would highly recommend you to choose just one topic for your blog because If you blog about diverse topics such as news, technology, games etc, this will confuse your readers.
If you blog about just one topic then it will help your readers know what they can get from your blog.
It’s your turn
